In addition to Gnostic, Jewish, and Pauline Christianity, there were already many other versions of Christianity being taught. After the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the Jewish Christian movement was scattered. Pauline and Gnostic Christianity were left as the dominant groups.

The Roman Empire legally recognized Pauline Christianity as a valid religion in 313 AD. Later in that century, in 380 AD, Roman Catholicism became the official religion of the Roman Empire. During the following 1000 years, Catholics were the only people recognized as Christians.

From the book,“A History of Christianity”… volume 2 Clyde L. Manschreck, Editor, comes the following………

Christianity’s oldest confession of faith, the Apostle’s Creed, originally known as the Old Roman Symbol, was also developed about 150 in reaction to Gnosticism and the need for identifying statement.

Why? Does it frustrate you that I do?

Always worrying about others. That is so nice and wonderful.

Has it paid off for you? You must get some thank you cards in the mail from all over the place showing gratitude, right?

I for one am thankful you are here to admonish me. I don't think there is anywhere I would rather have that applied to me.

Don't you agree?

BTW - all that was from my Self. Yes I do know it.

But ya see, if god is hiding things from you, he must believe you can't handle knowing what he knows. So I suggest you simply don't move and don't think ... then when you die, god can't judge for anything.

God never hides good things FROM us, but he does hide things FOR us. just as precious stones and metals need to be mined from deep within the earth in order to be appreciated, so precious/spiritual truths need asking, seeking and knocking to discover, otherwise they'd just be common. the indiscrete, of course, could care less and don't understand the difference between the precious and profane.

At which point the Catholics began systematically exterminating all forms of Christianity, murdering those who would not accept the authority of the Catholic Church and burning all scriptures other than their own.

you're making a HUGE assumption here, that if there were a god it has left us aimless.

i do NOT believe that, but have found the Bible to be an enormous help for navigating life, both now and into eternity.

Zero.
The story itself is absurd at every level.
Any true God would not leave out the majority of mankind from your vision -- if true.
That's why it can't be true. A real God would not be a bigot.
A real God would give everyone the same opportunity for the truth, not just those who happened to be born at the right place in time.
A real God would have the same standards of morality for itself as it demands of us. Bigotry based on national origin is simply wrong.
God never left no one out "Religion A Delusion" people left out God. Men make gods out of anything they want, they have free will to do so.
Jesus died on the cross for everyone, the 2 thieves on either side of Jesus when He was one the cross; one accepted Him the other didn't .
That doesn't mean Jesus didn't love the other one, He did Jesus was dying for the very people who crucified him.
"Jesus said father forgive them for they no not what they do."
Even at the height of Jesus suffering on that cross He was thinking of them, even the ones who were inflicting the pain.

You are welcome.
Why do I accept the canon of scripture? Because the Church compiled them and I am a member of the Church.
Btw, have you read the Book of Enoch? Enoch was the father of Methusalah, the dude that lived over 900 years.

Myths are not what they seem.

your choices of belief are adding up to create a very stubborn doctrine which is very discriminating against all the evidence of Jesus!

there will be a test, and all your prejudice against 'christendom' will not justify your choice to reject The Christ!

And that is why you constantly talk about having sex with prostitutes and talking about female posters' sex organs begging them for cyber sex.

You are such a fraud. Posting all pious here while on WINLAC you act like a pig.

Once again, we thank you for showing what a crock of shit Christianity is.

1. extinction?= far from it. as of 2011 - 6,973,738,433 live on this planet. A lot of people will have to be dead before your claim come to fruition. Why do you hope for destruction? Life is a much better position to dwell in.
2. "anti-life" - live in love, and the life around you will begin to show you their role in this world. I hope you won't be surprised when you realize that there is more love in the world than what you think.
Isn't Self, crazy-wild!!??
New Age Spiritual Leader:

Extinction: As ecosystems and biodiversity disappear, there is an obvious stress on life on this planet.(Its called the "6th" extinction.)

An example:

http://www.actionbioscience.org/newfrontiers/...

I don't think I am pessimistic when it comes to life, and love on this planet. I realize the newer forms of religion are a part of modern trends, and these will continue.

But there are, it seems to me, forces unleashed which are anti-life, and anti-love, which have grown in power as knowledge has grown.

That is the difference.
I post quotes from many different authors on many different subjects, and even I don't always agree with the contents of what I post.
Bible thumpers take ONLY favorite scriptures from the bible and ignore the other scriptures as though they don't exist.
You don't play fair at all, and you seem to believe that habit is the stuff of holiness???
I think NOT.
Yeah you do you have flooded this thread with the quotes you have taken from them.
Just as much as we post scripture, so were is that different June.
then what you are doing.
You seem to think Christianity is a belief, it is not its away of life.
Your the one under the assumptions that Christians are perfect or think they are, that isn't true, far from it.
There is only one Holy Righteous God that is what I believe.
He is my Heavenly Father.
It is my right to believe in Jesus and you have the same rights not to believe so what's your problem.

You'll talk about how the Self is important, yet you refute it daily. Why?
New Age Spiritual Leader:

Eschatologically speaking, both the individual and humanity as a whole are moving toward "life and death". So both of these sense an identity of the here and now, to the future.

You might call that identity the Self.

But is there a distinction in the future of those moving towards spiritual death, and spiritual life? And is it within ourselves, or the stars(as Shakespeare puts it), in God that are both destinies?

Really?!
Do you think that they may have been the ones who fused our two genes, making us different than apes?
What do you believe they may have taught us?
How about farming and irrigation.
How about writing?
How about measure and mathematics?
How about harmonics?
How about succession of the bloodline?
how about metallurgy?
How about where we came from and the basic science of it?
How about genetics?
Many ancient texts tell us specifically about those teachings...however none of those teachings are in the canons.
I wonder why not.
I think they taught humans a lot of things, as you listed. Technology which we don't even have today. How to make the pyramids, for one. Check out those huge cut stone megaliths. And other things.
If it weren't written in the Bible about the giants, I'd probably not entertain the notion. But since it's there, I can't deny the very real possibility. And there is something about dna involved as well. That's why Jesus' bloodline was so important.
Also, in the Bible Jesus says that in the end times it will be as in the days of Noah. So, I believe that these aliens/fallen angels/demons (whatever you call them) will reveal themselves to mankind and tell us that we come from them and they are here to save us and to give us technology to live forever.
This I believe is the great deception that is written about in the Bible. The mark of the beast.
Some might call me crazy, and I understand it does sound out of this world.

What you are describing is pride and hypocrisy.

If you think they are only human inventions and there are no spiritual beings capable of pride and hypocrisy, then that is another issue.
